The Roman may have killed your for accepting their Gods, but wouldn't tell you you're going to burn in hell for it.

In fact such a beliefs are primarly a judeo-christian thing, reducing the millions of alternative options, to at best 2-3.

And your point is .?

At least TTA members are real, unlike that made-up monstrosity of a god you decided to waste your life metaphorically blowing Drinking Beverage

Also, WAY to show your flagrant insecurity, bringing reputation and popularity into a conversation that had NOTHING to do with it. You truly are pathetic.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
